Nick Ut and the photo "Napalm Girl"

Nick Ut and the photo “Napalm Girl” taken in 1972 have become an unforgettable symbol when it comes to the brutality of the Vietnam war. Nick Ut, whose real name is Huynh Cong Ut, was born in 1951 in Long An Province. He is now a war correspondent of the AP news agency (the US). The photo was taken in Trang Bang, Tay Ninh, during a napalm bombardment of the US army.

The photo "Little Napalm" has shocked international opinion, is believed to have changed the views about the Vietnam war. The photo also won photographer Nick Ut the 1973’s Pulitzer Prize.

The British magazine New Statesman in 2010 voted "Napalm Girl" the most impressive photo of all time. “Napalm Girl” also presented many other prestigious awards around the world.

Nick Ut has never failed to show his love to the S-shaped country, Vietnamese people and his obsessions about the unjust war in Vietnam, every time he returns Vietnam. That “Napalm Girl” was taken when Nick Ut was an American citizen did not stop him from condemning the unwarranted Vietnam war through realistic photos.

Notwithstanding being a household name in the international press, Nick Ut still takes deep pride in the S-shaped country and being a Vietnamese national as well.
